Dictionary Challenge

Hello. Something a little bit different today. I have at long last found the time to join in over at  

I found this old dictionary a while back in a charity shop with this challenge in mind. For this fortnight the letter is B, I chose B for Balloon. Mainly because there is already a picture of a balloon on the page which I thought was really cool. But secondly I have balloon and cloud stamps (free with a magazine) that were the perfect size.

I coloured with Inktense pencils and a tiny drop of water. The pages are quite thick so adding the water was fine.
